Mr. Juan O. Rodriguez
I officially started teaching bilingual students. It felt great helping struggling students. However, my passion was and still is in the Visual Arts and Spanish. I went on to teach at W. A. Todd Ninth Grade Campus in Donna, Texas. I taught there for 3 years, I then worked for IDEA Academy Charter Schools where I taught 2 years Art and Spanish. Starting my second year at IDEA, I realized that I was not serving my students as effectively as I would have liked. My wife and I decided to move to San Antonio and I applied to NEISD. An opportunity came up in the Fall of 2006. The vacancy was open for an Art/Spanish teacher to work with Dr. MaryJo McLaughlin at the Academy of Creative Education. The fit was perfect with the certificate I had. Today, I am working on my 18th year at ACE teaching Visual Arts and Spanish as a world language to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. It is a privilege and a pleasure to serve these students and our community.
